Place leaves and yard debris in large paper leaf bags or open barrels labeled “yard waste.” Do not use plastic bags; they will not be collected. Two free “yard waste” stickers are available per household for barrels by calling 617-635-4500.
Tie branches with string; do not put branches in barrels.
Put barrels, bags, and branches on the curb by 7 am on your recycling day.
Please note: for the two weeks prior to October 15, leaves will not be taken at trash pickup; please hold on to your yard waste until the leaf collection begins.
